Progressives Plan March On NRA In DC Monday
TPM ^ | December 16, 2012 | Evan McMorris-Santoro

Posted on 12/16/2012 8:28:19 PM PST by Cheerio

CREDO, a progressive grassroots group, is organizing a march on the National Rifle Association's lobbying arm in Washington, D.C. Monday.

"After the shooter Adam Lanza, no one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association," CREDO wrote on the Facebook page where the march is being organized. "To stop the senseless killing we must first stop the NRA."

Liberals will not rest until we are disarmed - count on it. They know how to fight and they are patient - some of their strategies have been on going for over 40 years.

Typical liberals. Blame everyone but the person responsible.

This is precisely why the country is in the shape it’s in.

If twenty-six old, bitter clinger, Christian white guys had been murdered, would they still be marching?

The current headline on nra.org is still "More Guns, Less Crime in Virginia" from 11/27/2012. While it's 100% accurate that crime is reduced when gun ownership increases (and that point can't be made often enough, the NRA needs to get aggressively proactive to counter the leftist lies in the wake of the Newtown murders. Right now, the far left is controlling the narrative. The NRA needs to step up to the plate and be a voice of sanity, emphasizing that the shootings occurred in a so-called "gun free" zone.

The Gun Control Nazis just want to make these victims their “Reichstag Fire”.

Had people listened to the NRA, fewer families would be burying their children now

There are about 110 million gun owners in the U.S. and only 4.3 million NRA members. Attacking the NRA just might increase its membership substantially.

Did you see any protests after the Ft. Hood massacre? Actually, it was pretty much ignored. Hope that answers your question.

I trust them to fight a thoughtful and effective campaign. Charging headlong into the fray isn’t always the only or best option. They know it’s game time. they know what they’re doing. critical to this fight will be money. I imagine they’re building up cash flow right now. the liberals will assist them with that.

It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.. . Samuel Adams

Or in the case of liberals, to set brushfires of surrender and submission in the minds of men. We definitely have “an irate, tireless minority” dedicating their entire lives to subjugating the American people.

OK..... the proggies are going to surround NRA headquarters in northern Virginia, are they?

I’ve been there (fabulous gun museum). The building & grounds are designed to canalize protesters. The place is alive with surveil cameras. Demonstrations and/or violent outbursts will be well recorded & could increase membership.

BTW, disabled vets get life membership at half cost. I did.

Number one killer of children is auto accidents. Number two is drowning. Should we ban all vehicles and pools?

How about obesity? Should we ban utensils since they enable you to eat (and get fat).

You’re right, except for the fact that the Reichstag fire was a false flag op, this will be used in the same way. Unfortunately I think the left is going to win this one. Which 2nd amendment defender will go on TV and defend guns in the face of 20 dead 6 year olds. i repeat, 6year olds. The wave that this is going to start will be so powerful that we’ll be lucky if a citizen is allowed to own a Winchester 94 or a Remington 700. The days of being able to buy an AR 15 or even a mini 14 will soon be gone. The ammo will be gone as well since confiscating all semi autos will be too expensive and well nigh impossible and could result in violent reactions.

Yes. This is a watershed moment in US history. When they start displaying those tiny caskets. 12 little girls. 6 little boys and 6 woman teachers and not one grown man ......the woman’s vote will be 99% for gun control. No way any politition is going to get in the way of that. It may take while but semi automatics will be banned.

I would. It is actually easy. Just point out that kids are slaughtered in “no gun zones” again and again, and then ask why the left wants to turn the nation into a “no gun zone.” What, do they enjoy seeing children killed or do they just not care?

I will say this until y'all get tired and yell at me, join NRA, GOA and every other pro RKBA organization NOW.

I just got an NRA gift membership for my grandson, and no, I didn't really have 35 bucks to spare right now, but I'll just do without some other stuff until payday.

I'm sure the spirit of Adam Lanza will be marching with them because it is only in gun free zones that people like Adam can murder so many people.

Guns are banned in schools, which didn’t stop a mass murder, therefore, the bans need to be expanded to other venues, and regarding certain types of guns, because that’s the problem. So say the liberals. Too bad no Republican will stand up against that. Although to answer your question, reports are that the shooter offed himself when the first responders started closing in. Having a first responder inside the school instead of “just minutes away” would have saved a lot of lives.

No one is going to take the idea of arming school personnel seriously. As I said on another thread in 38 years in the classroom I’ve met maybe ten people I’d want to be in the same building with if they were armed. And most of those were guys who’d served in Nam.In those 38 years I’ve worked with maybe 6 or 7 hundred teachers. And if I’d have had a weapon duting my 38 years i can think of a hundred situations I’d have been tempted to use it on a kid, a colleague, or an administrator.

Easily defensible since law abiding gun owners didn't cause this nut-job
to kill his own mother, and murder innocent Teachers and Children.

There are no two degrees of separation here and no rational argument can be made
against the public. I said Rational.

Obama is now speaking to Americans like we're children and need to be punished.
If that alone doesn't infuriate the masses nobody is paying attention.

Every NRA member in the whole DC area should show up at NRA HQ in a show of support. Please, please if you truly believe in your 2nd Amendment rights and can possibly get there, show up and support the NRA. Don’t let the idiots get away with this. If a hundred of them show up, we should number in the thousands.

I wish I was close so I could be a part of it, but I am far away at the moment.

Roughly speaking, for every person that is killed by gunfire in this country (including police action, murder, suicide, and accidents), something like 25 are killed by abortionists.

But as always, amongst liberals, there’s only outrage over the one, and never a thought about the 25.
